Community Tables is more than just a delicious meal. It’s a time to share stories and celebrate community. At Haley House, we believe that food should be healthful, locally sourced, and affordable. That’s why we made Community Tables pay-what-you-can, which means that we accept payment for the meal based on what customers can offer–even if that’s nothing at all. All are welcome at our table.
